  • All four prayers will be livestreamed on the masjid’s Facebook page and its YouTube channel.

Prayer Locations:

  • Men will pray in the Multi-Purpose Hall (gym)
  • Women will pray in the prayer halls in the main building – both upstairs and downstairs halls will be available

Pay Your Fitrah:

Fitrah must be paid before salat-ul-Eid.  Please pay it as soon as possible instead of waiting until the prayer.  Teams that are responsible for distributing the Fitrah to the right people require time and paying at the last minute means that your money does NOT reach the right people in time.  Fitrah is $10 per person and can be paid in person or electronically using either of the following methods:


  • Please try to attend the 3rd to help reduce congestion in the first two prayers.
  • Please CARPOOL to avoid heavy congestion when entering and exiting the masjid.
  • Please leave quickly upon finishing the prayer and the khutbah to make room for people coming for the next prayer.
  • Please follow the instructions by the parking volunteers and officers present there to guide the flow of traffic.
  • It is VERY important that no one blocks the way for another car, unless instructed to do so by the parking team.
  • You are expected to return immediately following the prayer if your car is blocking anyone.
  • Please note that a new grassy parking surface has been made available outside the masjid, next to the subdivision to the south side of the masjid.  Enter that parking area from the subdivision side.
  • The following graphic represents the traffic flow that will be enforced getting into and out of the masjid parking lot.

Weather Concerns:

There is a 40% chance of rain in our area on Wednesday until about 9 AM.  Please bring plastic bags to keep your shoes in and keep these next to you when you pray.
